Easier said than done, right?
We don’t have to know everything about the future. We just have to know the Lord.
Towards of the end of last year I really started to focus on conquering my fears. If you know me well, you know that every year I pick a word to focus on; joy, happiness, etc. For 2018, my word is ‘brave’.
Since the beginning of January, I have read as many books and bible verses about overcoming fear as you could possibly imagine. I knew that being paralyzed by fear would prevent me from living the best life God has in store for me. I wish I could tell you that I’ve conquered it, but that would be lying. What I can tell you is that I have grown so much in my daily walk through prayer and investing time in reading the word daily.
“Now without faith it is impossible to please God, since the one who draws near to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.” Hebrews11:6
This verse tells us that the one who draws near to Him must belive, and that He will reward those that do. I believe with all my heart and soul that He has helped to heal me.
Many times in this journey, when I feel darkness trying to drown me, I remind myself that my maker walks on water. Ultimately love casts out all of my fears. God knows my heart. He knows me more than anyone else and loves me more than anything. At the end of the day, I’ve learned that when I focus on the BLESSINGS in my life and not the anxiety, the fear eases, and the light shines.
So when times and situations become dark around you and you are afraid, remember that you always have the light of the world in you no matter what is happening.
Lord knows I have so much work left to do, but I do know that allowing myself to be vulnerable and open up to people, that allows others to know that we are all in this walk together. We’re all just walking each other home.
Lets be the light together, friends!
